Knights in the Museum / Caballeros en el Museo


OK, so I know I am a total geek but honestly, is that not totally cool?  :)  A full set of armor for rider AND horse!  Original to the Middle Ages and on display at the Chicago Art Institute.  Welcome, dear hearts, and thank you for stopping by.  Today I am sharing the pictures from my trip to the institute except for the ones of the paintings (Manet, Van Gogh for example.)  Those I will likely post next time.

¿Ok, así que sé que soy un geek total pero sinceramente, no es totalmente genial? :) Un conjunto completo de armadura para el jinete y caballo. Original de la edad media y en la exhibición en el Instituto de arte de Chicago. Bienvenidos, queridos corazones y gracias por venir. Hoy estoy compartiendo las fotos de mi viaje al Instituto excepto los de las pinturas (Manet, Van Gogh, por ejemplo). Los que voy a publicar es probable que la próxima vez.



These are 2 examples of art by Native American tribes.  My mother loved all things Native American and would have so enjoyed their display.  I have never seen such wonderful pieces from this era in an art museum.

Estos son dos ejemplos de arte por tribus nativas americanas. Mi madre amaba todas las cosas nativo americano y así habría disfrutado su visualización. Nunca he visto tan maravillosas piezas de esta época en un museo de arte.



African art was also well represented.  These 2 masks caught my eye instantly.  The bottom one is very creepy and, as I stood their alone in a very quiet room beside it, it was not hard to feel its energy.

También estuvo representado el arte africano. Estas 2 máscaras me cautivó al instante. El de abajo es muy espeluznante y, como estaba su sola en una habitación muy tranquila al lado de él, no era difícil de sentir su energía.


This, dear friends, is the very first ever Grumpy Cat :)

Esto, queridos amigos, es el primer gato siempre malhumorado :)


Keeping with the animal theme, check out these cheeky monkeys :)

Acuerdo con el temático de animales, échale un vistazo a estos simios :)



And oh yes, the area that held the armor.  Once I stumbled upon that it was pure bliss for me.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  And an big extra thanks to those who left me such sweet comments on my last post.  It makes me feel so much more accepted and confident to read them and believe me, I have read them each quite a few times :)  You are so wonderful and I hope you never doubt/question/forget it.  If you do, though, just ask me and I will remind you.  Be well, many hugs and kisses all around and thanks for all the love!

Y, oh sí, la zona que llevó a cabo la armadura. Una vez me encontré con era pura felicidad para mí. Muchas gracias por visitarnos. Y extra grande gracias a aquellos que me dejó tan dulce comentarios en mi post anterior. Me hace sentir mucho más aceptada y confianza para leerlos y créeme, he leído los cada unas cuantas veces :) Eres tan maravilloso y espero que nunca duda/pregunta/olvidar esto. Si, sin embargo, sólo pregunta y yo le recordará. Bueno, muchos besos y abrazos a todos y gracias por todo el amor!

Well hello, darling! Ancient grumpy cat needs some time-correct captions. Am working on it :) And if perhaps I was banished from the museum for trying on a set or two of the armor and borrowing a broad sword I will never say :)

Me too, dear. Painting are all well and good, but the sociologist in me finds most fascinating the crafts and totems that people produce. Same with the modern world :) Thanks for your sweet visit!

You have a very unique blog! I found you through a couple of other blogs I happened to visit..
I love the grumpy cat and the cheeky monkeys lol. The red Indian art..its quite fascinating! Love the painting..is that a painting? When I was a kid I read a novel from my dad's collection called the Indians of the Oaks. The characters and the story of that book is still etched in my memory and I often recall the book with much fondness Also because I relate it with my childhood. Sadly, it got misplaced maybe in between us shifting houses. I recommend the book very highly if you are fond of reading :)
